Lindsay Bell

Lindsay Bell is a PhD candidate in the department of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. Her research interrogates the social relations engendered by large scale natural resource extraction. Her current work focuses on labour migration and class inequalities in Canada's diamond basin. She has conducted extensive field research in circumpolar North America on such topics as the political economy of language endangerment in Alaska and the political economic consequences of land claim settlements in Canada's Northwest Territories. Trained as a sociolinguist, her work underscores a material dialectical approach to the study of language ideologies and economic change.
